    Interesting video, but the volume needs to be at least 50% higher.

    Oh my god damn it, I never thought about using low tier belts to control throughput, I've just been using max tier belts everywhere :/

    Your limiting factor is conveyor capacity, or vehicle loading speed. Your goal is to prevent spaghetti which makes you want to quit the game. There will be a need for rebuilding with improved conveyors later on. All this combined means the best policy is to transport the most DENSE material.

    For example, if you need Screws do not send Screws, send Ingots and produce Rods and Screws locally.

    The still-early-game Mk 2 conveyor can send 120 Ingots or 120 Screws per minute, but all recipes call for Screws in much higher amounts than the Screw Constructor calls in Ingots, so you would need multiple Screw conveyor layers to supply multiple Fabricators using Screws, and to send a lot of Screws you would increase your logistical resource usage, spread spaghetti and make it more annoying to re-build later on.

    120 Ingots can supply 8 Screw Constructors who could supply ~4 Large Fabricators generally. Building the final component locally costs a bigger footprint, but it makes managing the logistical chain so much more pleasant and it will eliminate the spaghetti monstrosity.

    The blue and orange is giving a strong portal vibe. Is this how Apature started?

    Hey could we get a video explaining how to get raw resources or smelted ingots to factories? I run into the issue of having not enough iron at a location for expansion but I’m not sure about bussing in a load of ingots, or how to effectively go about it.

    This is a really elegant build. I have troubles with vertical gaming but this helped out quite a bit.

    What always drives me nuts is getting enough floor space to work with. I usually play in the more scenic forest areas, but it's almost nothing but highly uneven terrain and small flats bounded by cliffs. I'm not particularly keen on paving over the scenery (I try to keep as many trees as possible) or building sky factories, so it's a challenge working with/into the terrain and still having enough building space without spagettifying the internal logistics. I end up with a series of smaller factories with limited, if minimal, production capability and limited expandability because everything has to go vertical, and not without total overhauls. If I can get so much as a 6x8 footprint, I have to consider that 'good'.

    Wow I built a factory near that same location but I did small very tall factories instead of compartments in one large factory. But yours are so much more satisfactory.

    Great videos. In the interest of detail though, "fauna" are animals and "flora" are plants. So you are routing items around the poisonous flora, not fauna :) I like the bus idea too.

    I like making compartments that can be stacked or mirrored to increase production. However, I find that it is much easier to just lay every building of the same type (like smelters) neatly in rows on the same floor. I might then move the combined output above the current floor, where a new row of production buildings travels on top of the footprint of the previous floor. Or I might just continue on the same floor.
    I love conveyor escaltors but they are just so much more work than building flat. Conveyor lifts might change my mind when they arrive.
